TITUSVILLE, Fla., Aug. 14 (UPI) -- A Florida defense lawyer was arrested for allegedly threatening to kill his girlfriend while challenging her to a naked sword duel, police say.

Terry Lee Locy, 36, of Titusville was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence battery Thursday, Florida Today reported.

The police report says Locy and his girlfriend had been arguing Wednesday morning about the man's drinking habits. Locy then allegedly took a mirror off a door and "raised it up as if he was attempting to strike" the woman, who grabbed the hook the mirror was hanging from and threw it at Locy, cutting his head.

Then, after showering, Locy, who was still naked, handed a sword to his girlfriend and said, You're going to need this," unsheathed a larger sword and said, "I'm going to kill you."

The woman tried to flee, but Locy allegedly slammed her into a couch in the living room and punched her several times. She managed to get away and call 911.

The girlfriend told police Locy left the house still naked and with a sword.

Locy was arrested the next day at a hospital.

He was released from the Brevard County Detention Center Friday and told to have a mental health evaluation.
